Not sure if I can post this here or not because it is not exactly kid/mom related, but I am trying to find a way to make a little extra money and I was looking at Mary Kay or Avon (don't worry! I am not trying to sell anything and I won't contact any of you after I decide!). I was just wondering what your experience is with either one,  who you like best and do you buy from either of those? I guess I am just trying to get an idea of where the market is and what would be better for me. Thanks for the help!

 I like Avon better.  I dont like sitting through a party doing makeup etc.  Also, I havent seen mary kay in a long time, but I know avon does things for both genders, all ages and not just makeup.

I love Avon, but not for makeup. I bought the new lipstick awhile back, but haven't used it. I mostly buy stuff for my Son.

I haven't bought from either of them but like Avon better since they sell more of a variety of things. I would buy from Avon if I had the extra money.

I like Avon better but my opinion might be biased since I am an Avon rep.  I looked into several for making extra money as well and Avon seemed best to me.  Avon has been around the longest, is cheaper than even drugstores (but better quality), sells a great variety, their products really work as advertised and has the lowest start up cost.

I like both but favor Mary Kay more. Both sell men products also. But Avon is cheaper so your more likely to get people to buy from you that way.

I know that Mary Kay wants you to buy a large inventory and you have parties, and Avon I don't think you have to. I think Avon is a little less restrictive as to where you can sell (there are Avon stores, for example).

I'm actually a thirty-one consultant and I love it. It's purses, tote, thermals, home organization, etc. start up is pretty cheap and you don't have to keep a huge inventory.
